Dear All

This Thursday’s current projects will be Colin Klein to talk to us about:

Processes and capacities in the study of cognitive control. 

Cognition can be viewed as either a collection of ongoing processes or as a set of contextually triggered capacities. There is a metaphysical equivalence between the two, and many authors use the terms interchangeably. I argue, though, that focus on either processes or capacities introduces important methodological biases. I illustrate the point through a discussion of the diversity of models of cognitive control in humans. 

As usual, papers are presented in the Muniment Room, Old Quad.
